Welcome to St Mary's Care Home

Here at St Marys in the Norwich suburb of Crostwick, residents can enjoy relaxing and taking in the fresh air in our three acres of beautiful grounds.

With the village of Spixworth in easy walking distance, residents can be at the local shops and amenities, including the bus route, in a matter of minutes. Or they may simply relax in one of our TV lounges, a quiet sitting room or enjoy the views from our lovely south-facing lounge. For a little pampering, they need only visit our in-house hair salon.

At St Mary's Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.

Linda Galley, Daughter of Resident/Service User at St Mary's Care Home

The staff looked after her well with all her needs and requests. They tried to integrate her into the dining room and lounge where possible.

Karl Wetherell, Son of Resident/Service User at St Mary's Care Home

We would like to thank you all so much for the care and support that you gave our Mother over the last 10 months she was with you.

You excelled all our expectations with the level of care given from when our mother came to St Mary’s to the day that she passed away on the 12th January 2016. Sadly the public only hear the bad things about care homes, you should all be proud that your care home is excellent and it is clear that you all do care for your residents and do your very best in what must be difficult circumstances.

It is a great shame that you all are not more financially rewarded for the tasks that you undertake as you are all special people to do the job that you do and we are so grateful that you were there for us and made our mothers last months as happy and cared for as ever possible.

You touch so many people’s hearts in your work with the support that you give to the residents and their families, keep up this good work and keep St Mary’s the happy place we found it to be thanks to your wonderful staff.

Andrew Church, Son of Resident/Service User at St Mary's Care Home

My mother was against going to a care home and did not agree to go until the family was totally unable to care for her at home. Mum had bowel cancer and many other problems, toileting became a major issue. My brother and I chose St Mary's after much consideration and have blessed our choice to the day mum died. Mum was in St Mary's for 10 months in which time she was made to know and feel it was her home. Her wishes were upheld, it was clear to us that mum was treated with as much dignity and care as possible always considering mum's needs and requirements. Yes there were times when the overworked staff found it difficult but they always had a smile and nice words of encouragement when needed. My brother and I visited every day and were with mum for 10 days at the end 24 hrs a day. We saw how hard the staff worked but they still made time when we were upset to talk with us as well as mum it was obvious that they cared and showed compassion. Our sincere thanks to all carers night and day staff and management for taking such good care of our mother. You have a happy caring home keep up the good work you do a wonderful job.

Benarty-View-Care-Home-Kelty-Care-Home-Open-Day-2017

23 Jun 2017

Friday 16th June marked Care Home Open Day, a day that actively encourages people in the local community to pop into their local care home and find out what’s going on.

The theme for this year’s open day was friendship, and Four Seasons homes and their local community certainly forged some long lasting friendships with their local communities through a variety of different events.

The events included:

  • The Prince’s Trust heading into Kingsmead Care Home in Swindon sprucing up the garden
  • Ty Eirin Care Home in Port welcomed in local school children and councillors for a fun filled afternoon
  • A Jazz band kept everyone entertained in Pontypridd at Ty Gwynno Care Home
  • It was a more sleepy affair at Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield as the team turned up for work in the PJs before having lots of fun with residents, relatives and visitors to the home
  • Music and dancing was definitely on the cards for many of our homes as Benarty View Care Home in Kelty, Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton, Benholm Care Home in Forfar and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, all had musical entertainment (and an assortment of other activities) for their guests
  • Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow had their own petting zoo for everyone to enjoy
  • The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole held a country and western themed day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
  • Jazz was the music of choice at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston’s festivities.
  • Redwell Hills Care Home in Consett, remembered the friends they’d sadly lost and released some balloons with messages in their honour.

The photos you can see above are just a snap shot of what happened at our homes during Care Home Open Day. It’s great to see from the pictures that everyone had lots of fun.

20 May 2017

Residents, relatives and the care team sang the afternoon away in St Mary's Care Home in Crostwick as they enjoyed a performance from local entertainer Jim Henry.

Lee Ridgewell, Home Manager, said: “Everyone really enjoyed singing along with Jim. He pulled out a lot of the classics taking everyone back to their younger years. It was great seeing how much an activity such as singing could make a huge difference to the residents’ lives.”
